24 hours agoToronto Blue Jays second baseman Devon Travis (knee) had another setback and has yet to play in 2019 due to right knee soreness. He recently experienced more pain in his knee after ramping up the intensity of his workouts in Florida. He was sent to New York to be examined by Dr. Riley Williams, but not structural damage was found and Travis received a platelet-rich plasma injection to reduce inflammation. There is no timetable for his return. The 28-year-old has talent but has never been able to stay healthy in the majors. Travis has never played in more than 103 games in a single season and sports a career .274/.314/.437 slash line in 316 games over four seasons. You can continue to ignore him everywhere.--Keith Hernandez - RotoBallerSource: - Gregor Chisholm

1 day agoToronto Blue Jays starting pitcher Clay Buchholz (shoulder) has been diagnosed with a Grade 2 strain of his teres major muscle, which is located in the upper back and right shoulder area. He's scheduled to receive a second opinion this week from Dr. James Andrews, but there is currently no timetable for his return. It's looking like he'll miss significant time if the original diagnosis is confirmed. Out for the foreseeable future, Buchholz can safely be dropped in most leagues now. The veteran right-hander was 0-2 with a 6.57 ERA, 1.54 WHIP and 12 strikeouts in 24 2/3 innings in his five starts for Toronto.--Keith Hernandez - RotoBallerSource: - Gregor Chisholm
1 day agoHouston Astros infielder Aledmys Diaz (hamstring) is improving from a Grade 1 left hamstring strain that he suffered last Friday, and he could return to the lineup as soon as Tuesday. Manager A.J. Hinch said that Diaz will be back Tuesday "if all goes well." Diaz has been decent this year for Houston as a utility infielder, hitting .266/.307/.519 with five home runs and 21 RBI in 79 at-bats. He should continue to see playing time at the keystone until Jose Altuve (hamstring) is back from the injured list.--Keith Hernandez - RotoBallerSource: - David Barron

1 day agoChicago Cubs shortstop Javier Baez (heel) will not start on Tuesday. Manager Joe Maddon announced the news on a local radio station and Baez remains day-to-day with a heel contusion. It’s likely that Addison Russell will be at shortstop tonight versus Phillies starter Zach Eflin. Russell is no more than a dart throw in DFS Tuesday.--Daniel Burdeen - RotoBallerSource: Mark Gonzales

1 day agoSan Diego Padres outfielder Franmil Reyes blasted his 15th homer Monday against the Arizona Diamondbacks. Reyes’ two-run shot in the sixth inning determined the outcome in a tight 2-1 contest. Through 48 games, the 23-year-old slugger holds a sturdy .258/.299/.596 slash with 48 runs-plus-RBI. Reyes is both walking and striking out less this season but pummeling the ball with immense authority (.615 expected slugging). He’s one long ball away from the 16 he smacked during his 2018 rookie campaign in 121 fewer plate appearances. Solidified at right field on most nights, Reyes has evolved into a bankable power source in all fantasy formats.--Andrew Le - RotoBallerSource:

1 day agoAtlanta Braves outfielder Austin Riley was 1-for-3 with a two-run home run and a walk during a 4-1 win over the San Francisco Giants on Monday night. The 22-year-old, who was mashing with Triple-A Gwinnett to start the season, now has a ridiculous .409/.435/.864 slash line through his first 22 at-bats in the big leagues. He also has three HRs and six RBI over that span. If Riley is somehow still hanging out on the waiver wire, he is worth an immediate add in almost all formats.--Raymond Harrison - RotoBallerSource:

1 day agoSan Diego Padres starter Chris Paddack picked up his fourth win Monday, tossing six innings of one-run ball against the Arizona Diamondbacks. Paddack relinquished five hits and zero walks in 89 pitches while striking out seven. The Sheriff remains good as advertised, rocking a 1.93 ERA, 0.76 WHIP and 28.5 percent strikeout rate in 51 1/3 frames (nine starts). Paddack has walked one or less in eight outings and holds a spectacular 5.1 strikeout-to-walk ratio. Having never surpassed more than 91 innings in the minors and coming back from Tommy John surgery, Paddack could have his innings capped later in the season if the Padres fall out of contention, but he’s currently a bonafide must-start in all formats. He lines up to battle the Toronto Blue Jays on Sunday at the Rogers Centre.--Andrew Le - RotoBallerSource:
1 day agoAtlanta Braves starter Mike Soroka allowed one run on two hits through two innings of work during a 4-1 win over the San Francisco Giants on Monday. He struck out seven batters without walking any. The 21-year-old now has a 5-1 record to go along with a sensational 1.01 ERA, 0.87 WHIP, and 41/14 K/BB rate. The former first-round pick is unquestionably one of the top young arms in baseball. Soroka has a tougher matchup against the St. Louis Cardinals in his next outing, but he is worthy against any team at this point.--Raymond Harrison - RotoBallerSource:
1 day agoAtlanta Braves pitcher Sean Newcomb fired a scoreless ninth inning to earn the save during a 4-1 win over the San Francisco Giants. It was the first save opportunity of the year for the 25-year-old. Newcomb, who was demoted to Triple-A Gwinnett back in April, has not allowed a run yet in seven appearances out of the Braves' bullpen. Luke Jackson still factors into the ninth-inning duties, but if the Braves are not planning on putting Newcomb back into the rotation, it is wholly possible he earns his fair share of save opportunities. Fantasy managers can pick him up if they are desperate for saves, but it may be better to wait and see who earns the next opportunity.--Raymond Harrison - RotoBallerSource:
1 day agoAtlanta Braves outfielder Ronald Acuna was 3-for-4 with two solo home runs and a walk during Monday's 4-1 win over the San Francisco Giants. Acuna has been raking since returning to his regular leadoff spot, as he owns a .333 average with five HRs, 11 RBI, and two stolen bases across his past 15 games. The 21-year-old is one of the most exciting young players in baseball and has a potent lineup backing him up. He is arguably one of the most valuable players in dynasty formats and can be started without question every time he takes the field.--Raymond Harrison - RotoBallerSource:

1 day agoWashington Nationals third baseman Anthony Rendon had another big game Monday night at Citi Field against the New York Mets. Rendon reached base safely all four times he came to plate, walking twice, hitting his ninth home run and notching his league-leading 17th double. Rendon has been a bright spot in a dark season for the Nationals, hitting .324 with an OPS of 1.141. It looks like the first All-Star appearance is in order for the third baseman. Rendon will continue to anchor fantasy lineups the rest of the year.--Walt Clark - RotoBallerSource:

1 day agoPhiladelphia Phillies catcher J.T. Realmuto hit a solo home run in the tenth inning to lead the Phillies to a win Monday night in Chicago. Realmuto also had an RBI single in the game and has now homered in back-to-back games. Realmuto has settled in nicely with his new team sporting a career-high 43.7 percent hard-hit rate and leads all catchers with 30 runs scored. He's one of only a few players capable of being a true difference maker at fantasy baseball's weakest position. The righty swinging catcher will look to keep his hot streak going in his next three games at the Cubs, who are scheduled to start lefties in all three games.--Mike Schwarzenbach - RotoBallerSource: MLB

1 day agoMinnesota Twins third baseman Miguel Sano went 1-for-4 with a two-run homer in a 3-1 win over the Los Angeles Angels on Monday. Sano's two-run shot in the eighth inning broke a 1-1 tie and wound up being the difference in the ballgame for Minnesota. The veteran slugger was just activated from the injured list last week and is off to a bit of a slow start, hitting just .190 with two homers and five RBI. Sano remains an intriguing fantasy option considering his power potential in a loaded Minnesota lineup.--Matt Terelle - RotoBallerSource:

1 day agoMinnesota Twins closer Blake Parker pitched a scoreless ninth to lock down a 3-1 win over the Los Angeles Angels on Monday. Parker worked around one hit in the frame on the way to earning his eighth save in eight chances this year. Overall, Parker has a 1.10 ERA, 0.98 WHIP, and 12 strikeouts in 16 1/3 innings of work this season. He occasionally loses a save chance to lefty Taylor Rogers, but Parker continues to operate as the team's preferred ninth-inning option. His main issue this season has been the fact that the high-powered Minnesota lineup hasn't played in many close games this season. Still, he remains a quality fantasy closer in all formats.--Matt Terelle - RotoBallerSource:
1 day agoMinnesota Twins right-hander Jake Odorizzi pitched five scoreless innings in a 3-1 win over the Los Angeles Angels on Monday. Odorizzi struck out six and walked two but had to settle for a no-decision. The veteran right-hander has been excellent for Minnesota this season, posting a 6-2 record, 2.38 ERA, 1.06 WHIP, and 52 strikeouts in 53 innings of work. Keep Odorizzi active for his next start, which will come against the Chicago White Sox on Sunday.--Matt Terelle - RotoBallerSource:
1 day agoGolden State Warriors guard Stephen Curry continued his elite play on Monday when he recorded 37 points to complete the series' sweep over the Trail Blazers. Curry did not stop there as he recorded a triple-double with 13 rebounds and added 11 assists while drilling seven triples. Curry stepped up in this series with Kevin Durant (calf) out as he averaged 36.5 points, 8.3 rebounds and 7.3 assists across the four games. The Warriors now have nine days off before the 2019 NBA finals begin so we can expect a fresh Curry to be ready for Game 1.--Gianni Costantiello - RotoBallerSource: ESPN

1 day agoGolden State Warriors shooting guard/small forward Klay Thompson connected on just 7-for-21 shooting from the floor en route to 17 points in the two-point win over Portland on Monday. Thompson also grabbed six boards with two assists and a steal with a block. Thompson did not have the best offensive series against the Blazers where he shot just 37.9% from the floor, yet still managed to average 21.5 points across the four games. The Warriors will need Thompson to find his form in the Finals in order to have better odds at winning another title.--Gianni Costantiello - RotoBallerSource: ESPN

1 day agoGolden State Warriors power forward/center Kevon Looney provided a big double-double in the Game 4 clinching win on Monday over the Trail Blazers. Looney scored 12 points and grabbed 14 boards with a steal and a block across 29 minutes. Looney has played 20-plus minutes in his last seven games and depending on the situations of players Kevin Durant (calf), DeMarcus Cousins (quad) and Andre Iguodala (calf) for Game 1 of the Finals, this will have a major influence on Looney and his minutes for when the series begins.--Gianni Costantiello - RotoBallerSource: ESPN

1 day agoGolden State Warriors power forward/center Draymond Green continued his postseason resurgence on Monday when he posted another triple-double in the overtime win in Game 4. Green did it all once again as he scored 18 points while grabbing 14 boards with 11 assists and three steals with two blocks across 43 minutes. Green, along with teammate Stephen Curry became the first teammates to record triple-doubles in a postseason game. Green has been an absolute beast, but his value may take a slight hit when some of the Warriors' injured players return for the Finals, so stay tuned for updates to see where Green's value will be for Game 1.--Gianni Costantiello - RotoBallerSource: ESPN

1 day agoPortland Trail Blazers guard Damian Lillard poured in 28 points and added 12 assists but it was not enough in the 119-117 overtime loss to the Warriors to end the series in four games. Lillard connected on 11 of 24 shooting and added four rebounds to probably his best game of the series. Lillard struggled throughout the series after separating his ribs in Game 2 as he just did not look himself much of the series. Either way, we know Lillard will come back hungrier than ever next season and again will be a late first-round pick across all formats for next season's drafts.--Gianni Costantiello - RotoBallerSource: ESPN

1 day agoPortland Trail Blazers shooting guard/small forward Rodney Hood was non-factor in the Game 4 loss on Monday to the Warriors. Hood scored just seven points on 3-for-11 shooting from the floor and added just two rebounds with two assists with two steals across 40 minutes of action. After showing some serious promise earlier in the postseason and averaging 14.5 points int he series' first two games, Hood disappeared in Game 3 and 4 when he averaged just 5.0 points. Hood is a free agent and will garner some attention for his postseason success and depending on where he lands, he should have some late-round value for 2019-20.--Gianni Costantiello - RotoBallerSource: ESPN

1 day agoPortland Trail Blazers guard C.J. McCollum provided 26 points and seven assists in the Game 4 overtime loss to the Warriors on Monday. McCollum drilled 10 of 22 shots from the floor and connected on 5-for-9 shooting from three while chipping in two blocks and a steal in 44 minutes of action. McCollum, Damian Lillard, and Meyers Leonard combined for 84 of their clubs' 117 points and with no other Blazers' player reaching double digits, it was just not enough. McCollum is on the books for two more years in Portland and will again have early-round value across all formats for next season.--Gianni Costantiello - RotoBallerSource: ESPN

1 day agoPortland Trail Blazers power forward/center Meyers Leonard dropped 25 of his 30 points in the opening quarter of the Game 4 series-ending loss to the Warriors on Monday. Leonard nailed 12 of 16 from the floor and made five triples with 12 rebounds and three assists with a block and a steal. The move to put Leonard in the starting unit proved to be a positive one with him averaging 23.0 points and 7.5 rebounds in the series' final two games. With Enes Kanter to be hitting free agency and Jusuf Nurkic (leg) out for the foreseeable future, Leonard could is a solid look at late-round value for next season.--Gianni Costantiello - RotoBallerSource: ESPN

2 days agoCleveland Indians starting pitcher Carlos Carrasco took a loss on Monday, tossing five innings while giving up three runs on seven hits and two walks. He struck out four and allowed two home runs. The loss evened his record at 4-4 and moved his ERA to 4.30. Carrasco has been somewhat inconsistent this season, but he's shown examples of the upside that makes him worth starting every five days.--David A Marcillo - RotoBallerSource:
2 days agoChicago Cubs relief pitcher Brad Brach blew his first save on Monday versus the Phillies. With closer Steve Cishek unavailable on Monday, the Cubs elected to go with Brach who allowed two hits, one walk and one run. Brach owns a 2.75 ERA on the season with two holds and zero saves and doesn’t hold much fantasy value.--Daniel Burdeen - RotoBallerSource:
2 days agoChicago Cubs starting pitcher Yu Darvish put together another nice performance on Monday versus a tough Phillies lineup. Darvish cruised through the first five innings, before giving up three runs in the top of the sixth inning. In six innings, Darvish allowed four hits, three walks and recorded seven strikeouts. Darvish has thrown better of late and will face the Reds on Saturday.--Daniel Burdeen - RotoBallerSource:
2 days agoChicago Cubs first baseman Anthony Rizzo went 3-for-5 with a RBI on Monday versus the Phillies. Rizzo recently missed four games with a sore back and is 6-for-17 with a home run since returning to the lineup last Friday. Rizzo is as consistent as they come at first base as long as he stays healthy.--Daniel Burdeen - RotoBallerSource:

2 days agoYou might not know it when looking at the final score after a tough outing from the Rangers bullpen, but Mike Minor had one of his best starts of the season tonight against the Mariners. Minor struck out 11 hitters and allowed two runs over six innings. He was lucky to still grab the win as he left with a 10-2 lead in a game that ended 10-9. Minor's numbers improved to 67 strikeouts and a 2.67 ERA in 64 2/3 innings of work this season. If you haven't already, it is now time to buy high on Minor before it is too late.--Nate Duffett - RotoBallerSource:
2 days agoSeattle Mariners third baseman Ryon Healy was forced to leave Monday's game early after experiencing lower back stiffness. Healy had an ugly swing striking out in the fourth but stayed in the game hitting a sacrifice fly in the sixth before getting lifted for Daniel Vogelbach. The M's haven't updated his status if they expect him to miss any time, but he's likely to be considered day-to-day. Healy is having a decent season batting .240 with seven homers, 25 RBI, and 16 doubles as has shown fantasy value in deep mixed leagues. If he were to miss time Vogelbach and J.P. Crawford will benefit in his absence, but look for an update from the Mariners within the next 24 hours.--Riley Mrack - RotoBallerSource: Greg Johns - Twitter
